It's amazing how complete and accurate these databases can be, and then we see this...and begin to wonder how much else is really screwed up.

RockAuto is terrific, but you definitely need to be able to read between the lines to get the most out of it.

How many times does it need to be written here? ALL Retailers use the SAME 2 or 3 Databases! It's "realistically" Beyond their control!

It doesn't leak, it's marking it's territory.

A mirror is a reflection of the miles travelled.

"How many times does it need to be written here? " "People like to talk, not listen."

I'm the guy who did the original post. I purely posted it for the humor. And given the current state of things thought it might be a pleasant distraction. I've only been here a few months so I would have no idea how many times it (or similar) was written. And it wasn't so much I wanted to "talk" as the post was far more a visual presentation. But, my apology if it was seen as inappropriate.

Sometimes people don't get it.
Don't worry about it. Some of us did.
I don't remember anyone posting anti freeze. Radiator caps and thermostats yes.

Keep it coming wittsend. And like dad (Matt) would say "search". There are many Corvairs that use anti freeze.

Sometimes RockAuto's inaccuracies are pleasantly surprising.

For those unfamiliar, RockAuto's invoices list each part's country of origin. On my last order, they were almost all marked "China", which was disappointing as I had done my research and carefully picked parts that were likely to not be Chinese.

However, inspecting all the parts revealed almost all of them are actually from the US and Japan grinning smiley
